Mike & Lucy Robbins Graduate Scholarship Fund Award Winner
The Lucy Robbins Fellowship Award was established in the spring of 2005 in
memory of Lucy Robbins, the late wife of WFUHS faculty member Dr. Mike Robbins.
In 2014 the award was renamed the Mike and Lucy Robbins Graduate
Scholarship Fund. The award will be given annually to a graduate student
conducting cancer-related research and will be based on academic ability,
including outstanding academic and research expertise, demonstrated leadership,
outstanding interpersonal skills and a commitment to the ideals of excellence
in academic research. The recipient of the Mike and Lucy Robbins Graduate
Scholarship Fund award will be selected by a committee of graduate faculty. For
2016-2017, the award will consist of a monetary award and a certificate of
